In a message to the 55th meeting of the Union of Islamic Students Associations in Europe, Imam Khamenei said that "playing a role in fundamental issues" is like a badge of honor that has been pinned on the chest of the country's productive youth and is one of the most significant honors of the Islamic Revolution. The following is the full text of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution's message, which was read this morning by Hujjat al-Islam Sheikh Ahmad Vaezi, the Representative of the Supreme Leader for Student Affairs in Europe, in the videoconference with this Union. His message was as follows:
In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Sayyid Ali Khamenei
As each day passes, the importance of the role of the youth in the development of the country and in guaranteeing its future is becoming more and more evident. The Coronavirus pandemic has confirmed this once again. The determination, motivation, and enthusiastic hopes of the youth in this matter, like many other issues in the country, has led to scientific achievements in theory and in practice. This is one of the most significant honors of the Islamic Revolution, the fact that they have been able to “play a role in fundamental issues” is like a badge of honor that has been pinned on the chest of the country's productive youth.
Dear students, you are expected to take advantage of this precious opportunity that is at your disposal to adorn yourselves as much as possible with scientific, religious, and moral qualifications and prepare yourselves to take a role. The Union of Islamic Students Associations has a more serious, and of course more honorable, responsibility in this regard.
May God's peace and mercy be upon you,
February 19, 2021
